Earlier this week I went to sign up for some summer activities. It was a gorgeous morning at Blue Jay Park and I couldn't resist taking my camera. I heard many birds and saw a few squirrels. Most of the spring blooms have yet to arrive, but the Jane Magnolias are out and were the focus of my attentions.

According to the Arbor Day Foundation,  Jane Magnolias are a "member of the "Little Girl" group of hybrid magnolias developed in the mid-fifties at the U.S. National Arboretum."
